Is 10GB enough? for gaming?

Hi
Just joined plusnet (not live yet) after having trouble with talk talk who i can confirm have call centres in africa & india!!!  Angry Angry Angry Angry Angry
Anyway will 10GB a month last me? i use online gaming for about 6-7 hours a week (until MW2 calms down) and i surf a lot facebook poker! and watch the odd 10 minute video on youtube.  Shocked
Does anyone have the 10GB allowance what is your experience?  Smiley
P.S i have a ps3

Do I assume you are on value? 10GB might be enough for gaming, but sadly the traffic shaping on that account isn't good enough.
Pro or Premium are much better suited to gaming I'm afraid Sad
Will Moderate For Thanks

Wow! see i was thinking that if you get 6 hours a week you should be ok!
Whats the connection like? stable? i telephoned sony corp and they said you need at least 2MB a sec for a stable connection.

10gb a month alone for gaming and nothing else should be ok yes, but as soon as you start watching videos on youtubes and stuff like that, or downloading files, then your gona have trouble. but just for gaming, yes should be ok
